We have never been to a concentration camp before and as we were in Lublin this was a must visit for us..We were blown away by the whole experience. Very moving and emotional thinking of what those poor people suffered and went through..Writing this review has left me feeling so emotional thinking why and how these atrocities were carried out. This experience will stay with me for the rest of my life..If you get the chance to go you must do so..

In spite of the sad background it is really worth to visit the Majdanek concentration camp. It is a huge area so expect to spend up to 3 hours at the place. The Camp was only partly destroyed after the germans left it so you can see the baracks, the gas chambers and the crematorium. All over the place there are very informative signs and there are special exhibtions in the baracks telling the story from different point of views.

A visit to Auschwitz-Birkenhau might tick the boxes if you must visit one of the many concentration & extermination camps dotted across Northern & Eastern Europe but where that finds the relics sealed behind glass Majdanek is the Holocaust stripped bare. Unlike its better known counterpart with its distinctive profile looming on the horizon as you approach Majdanek almost ambushes you as you past through suburban streets, it’s barbed wire, watch towers and brutal memorial suddenly replacing the homes & gardens. Turned into a museum / memorial by the liberating Soviet army almost before the last shot of the War had been fired little seems to have changed since that day. The compact “showers” still bear stains upon their walls from the Xylon used to eliminate the camps inmates but it is inside a number of the barrack blocks that the impact of the horrors inflicted here first become apparent with a multitude of prisoners shoes piled high with only chicken wire divided you from them, not that that wire can stem the intense smell one that will remain for ever. Once one has explored the main camp, the path takes you up to a stunning mausoleum reminiscent of flying saucer where the unintered remains of the murdered where placed beneath its sheltering dome and here and there you may spot what remains of those who were incinerated at the nearby crematorium. With very few of those coming here out to “tick off” you can be left in peace to remember what happened here & offer up a prayer that it might never happen again.
